    Lessons From A New CEO (with Tara Wong)

    Not that there's anything wrong with interviewing dogs, but this week we are back with a real, live, person!  Joining Emily today is Tara Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Oakville Public Library. 

    Emily and Tara discuss the importance of using your network, asking for help, and how to adjust to the added pressures and responsibilities that come with leadership.  And how even when you've made it to the top, you may still have to fight for your parking space.

    Onboarding (and Farewell, Michelle!)

    Onboarding (and Farewell, Michelle!)

    It's Michelle's farewell episode, and while we are sorry to see her go (at least for now), we happily welcome Emily Burns to the OLA team.

    Join us for a passing of the torch... and also a chat about onboarding and the best ways to go about it.  How do you bring someone new into an organization? What's it like to be the new person?  We have both perspectives represented here, and we hope you'll join the conversation too.

    UnCommon Women (and splash of bourbon, too)

    Library Land Loves Kelsey Merkley and the fantastic work that she's done with UnCommon Women, a group she founded to celebrate the work done by women for the open movement. Not only is Kelsey my favourite open expert, she's also my go-to resource for all things bourbon. Come join us for a tasting, won't you?
